The 50 cal machine gun is a heavy gun in Fallout 76.

Background

This section is transcluded from Machine gun. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The 50 cal machine gun as its name implies is a machine gun chambered in the extremely powerful .50 round. Highly effective against infantry and other soft targets, materiel, lightly armored vehicles, boats, fortifications, and aircraft. Though heavy and cumbersome when used away from a mount, the advent of power armor and the creation of minigun frames for personnel use allowed this venerable weapon to be used by soldiers on foot.[1]

Characteristics

The M2 Browning machine gun[2] is a belt-fed automatic heavy weapon chambered for .50 caliber rounds. To be able to use the weapon, the player character must be at least Level 25.
